Why You Should Attend ECSC: An Engineering Student’s Perspective

Today's ECS Job Blog is brought to you by Mary-Kate Mullinger.  Mary-Kate is a Chemical Engineering student graduating this May 2017.  She is currently the Kappa Theta Epsilon President.  

I know what an exciting time it is to be back on campus.  Your last summer internship is over, college friends are coming back to campus for their final first day of school, and the excitement of football season is here in full force!  With all of the campus hub-bub, it can be easy to overlook the next step in our lives- starting our first full-time job.  It is so important to take advantage of the fall recruiting process in order to set yourself up for success after your walk across the field at the 'Shoe.  But how can you best take advantage of the biggest recruitment season for employers?

Why You Should Job Shadow: An Engineering Student's Perspective

Are you looking for a chance to meet with top OSU employers and learn more about being an engineer? If so, consider signing up for the 2016 Job Shadow Program! The Job Shadow Program is a one day commitment over Spring Break (March 14-18). You can sign up for more than one shadow if you’d like. Below you’ll find Matt Glasgow’s (ISE student) insight into his job shadow experience during the 2015 program.

SWE Career Fair Admissions--Important Changes This Year!

You may have heard that no career fair programs are being printed and sold this year.  Is this true?  It is!  Paper programs will no longer be printed and sold for any engineering career fairs!  The complete program information is available via the OSU Career Fair Plus app and the app is free.  Search for the OSU Career Fair Plus app on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Prefer a paper version of the program?  We understand that some students might still like having a hard copy of the program, so we are making the full version available for you to print.  Please check the swefair.engineering.osu.edu or ecs.osu.edu websites after January 25th.

In the past, the paper program has served as your admission ticket.  Going forward, your BuckID and a printed name badge will serve as your admission ticket.  …
